Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Hong Kong

Try these simple tips to find a price that suits your budget:

  • Travel on the Christmas Day: If you don’t need to be in Hong Kong on 25 December or are flexible with your holiday dates, travel on Christmas or New Year’s Day. Most travellers avoid these festive dates and travel a few days earlier or later, which makes flight prices considerably lower.
  • Have flexible timings: Steer clear of travelling during the peak business hours as these come with peak prices. Choose the first flight of the day or the very last, for example.
  • Choose budget airlines: Several well-known airlines like Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Qantas, Singapore Airlines fly from Australia to Hong Kong but at a cost. To keep to budget, choose their low-cost alternatives such as Scoot, Air China, China Airlines, China Eastern, and Hong Kong Airlines for lower flight rates. These generally include one or more stopovers en-route to Hong Kong.
